Update: This item is out of stock.

The Nest is awesome, but it's usually the price holding people back. Not today, wallet. Not today.

Is this deal for me?

Home Depot has the Nest 2nd generation smart thermostat refurbished for $139 with free shipping. The 2nd gen Nest goes for around $250 new, and it's currently $260 on Amazon. This deal price is about $40 off the regular refurb price. It's one of the best prices we've ever seen on any Nest. This deal expires November 3 or whenever Home Depot sells out.

The most recent Nest is the 3rd gen, but the differences are minor and the 3rd gen sells for around $250 as well, so you're saving a lot of money with this deal. You can use Target's Cartwheel service to get 15% off a new version if you'd rather go that route.

Normal thermostats are quite the pain, so why not replace it with some modern tech? Not only does the Nest work with voice assistants like Google Home and Alexa, it also works with modern smartphones. You can schedule temperature changes or even cool off your apartment from your phone before you get home. It has automatic features, too, like turning itself off when no one is home to save energy. It is an Energy Star-rated device, and you could reduce your utility bill by as much as 30%.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - This is the lowest price we've ever seen on any single variant of the Nest thermostat. Given the biggest barrier to the Nest has always been the price, this is definitely a deal to consider.
  • Things to know before you buy! - You might be eligible for discounts from your utility provider if you upgrade to a smart thermostat. If you have your heart set on a new Nest and not a refurb, Target is still running a 15% off coupon if you use the Cartwheel service.
